I find it a blessing that in Cameroon after carrying the violins around we now have performance majors in violin come visit us and help give lessons. Two of the visiting residents played violin through college. I also find it interesting that they both have interacted with Gamelan [sic] music which is an Indonesian type of music. Karen the Caucasian took a class in Gamelan from Smith college when she was in high school, and Emily went to Cornell where they have a Gamelan orchestra. It was neat last week to hear Hadiah, Emily, and Karen (who played on Miriam's little violin) play together.
